Summary: These are listenable IEMs. If excellent SQ isn't your first priority, these might be acceptable. Better than many of the sub-$20 'phones. Bass is prevalent and a bit boomy. There is some detail in the mids. Highs roll off early. Almost nonexistent soundstage.
Excerpt: Even though they market the Skull candy ear buds as have Flawless noise cancellation I found them to be lacking. I live on a busy street and would think that if I am sitting outside with my Ipod listening to music through headphones that make this claim then I would not be distracted by the sounds of traffic. I would think I could just sit and enjoy my music and a glass of ice tea on the porch. I would be wrong.
Excerpt: I have purchased 2 pairs of these and have mixed feelings. I like the quality for the price but I have had 2 pairs break when they were still relatively new. I purchased them because they had the volume control on the cord- plus I liked that they looked cool and came in pink. It assured me that my 3 sons would keep their hands off of them. They worked great until I took a trip and halfway through the flight the sound would flicker in and out.
Excerpt: Okay, so I used to have just the plain old ink'd buds. I loved them but they always fell apart on me. The little back of the earbud would fall off and expose the wires inside. They would last approximately 3 months if that long because the sound usually went out in one bud before that time. So....I was in love with the sound quality and adorable colors and skull on these earbuds, but not in love with the constuction.
The Skull candy smokin bud's Have a weak wire, but great sound.

Excerpt: Anyone can tll you that music is an important part of culture. Music is used in all walks of modern life, as a backdrop to the diffrent commercials, movies, and even television shows that we see every day. But today we're here to talk about personal music. The skull candy headphones, or more accurately the skull candy smokin buds.
